Roadside bomb kills Iraq governor

#1
Yes, another one.

The Shia governor of Iraq's southern Muthana province has been killed by a roadside bomb, officials have said.
The governor, Mohammed Ali al-Hasani, was killed when the bomb exploded next to his convoy as it drove through the provincial capital, Samawa, police say.

Several bodyguards were also injured in the explosion, which happened at 0800 local time (0400 GMT).

Mr Hasani belonged to the largest Shia party in Iraq, the Supreme Islamic Iraqi Council (SiiC).

He is the second Shia governor killed this month.

It looks as a post of a governor in Iraq is a special form of suicide.
